Welcome to the Weekend Watch. Where we try to point you towards the best ways to spend your viewing time (or, at least, steer you clear of the garbage).
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
Loren: Someday Charlie Hunnam will do something good. Today is not that day.
RDT: 23% on Rotten Tomatoes (as of right now). Seems pretty spot on to me.
Rick: Sweet Jesus, Warner Bros. Why do we need a CGI’d, tatted up, dude-bro version of Excalibur? I’m good, thanks. I’ll go back and watch John Boorman’s version instead.
Jen: We finally have the gritty reboot of the King Arthur legend we’ve all been clamoring for. Wait, you mean no one was asking for this? Then… why?
Loren: I kinda got all I wanted from Amy Schumer’s movies in Trainwreck. Can we just get more of her TV show instead?
RDT: I wouldn’t say I’m part of the Amy Schumer backlash, per se. I just don’t find her particularly funny anymore. Nice to see Goldie Hawn working again though.
Rick: I really like Goldie Hawn, but I…I don’t know if I can make it through this one.
Jen: I feel like I should want to see this, but… meh. Maybe when it’s streaming and I’m through half a bottle of wine?

RDT: I’ve watched 8 Fast & Furious movies recently. I’m good.
Rick: While I enjoy me some Demián Bichir (The Bridge) and appreciate that the criminal aspect to the story isn’t the typical drugs/guns/murder trope, I don’t know that I’ll ever get around to this.
Jen: I am not the target audience for this one. At all. Continue reading
